A wooden grain elevator at Bradwardine, in the Municipality of Riverdale, was constructed in 1927 by the Bradwardine Cooperative Elevator Association as part of the Manitoba Pool Elevators network. A wooden crib annex was built beside it in 1948. The facility closed in July 1980 when the CPR Lenore Subdivision was abandoned. The building was sold to a local farmer and remains in use of late 2020.
